Just for reference, you only need four things to have a well operating saltwater pool..

Salt.. Once up to the required amount, just a little to keep it up..

CYA (also called Stabilizer).. Once up to our recommend level only need a little to keep it up.

Muriatic Acid (MA)... Needed to keep your pH at the recommended level. Usually a once a week dose..

Water... It is hard to swim without water in the pool... :mrgreen:

You do not need any other "magic".. No clarifier, no phos free, no other pool store magic or packages of shock... Pretty simple...
